I hoping that someone can help me out with my delimna. I'm opening a new set of books for a company that is building a new building as the owner of the building and then will lease it out. I'm trying to generate a propsed budget for this project and having a brain cramp.

Can someone walk me through this process, I can generate a budget for normal expenses but having trouble generating a budget so that we don't get over charged on the quoted project. The funds are disbursed throu draws as the project goes on.

my Quickbooks usage is pretty rusty, but I remember doing something similar, setting up bugets for a museum and their fund raiser projects.

If I was setting it up for a construction project, I would probably break down the estimated budget, based upon estimates, either in time stages, i.e. first month, estimated expenses, etc, or by the joby type.. i.e. plumbing, electrical, roofing, etc

Yeah I will have to visit the estimate idea, keep trying the budget but it's really tuff to do for current assets, a breeze for expenses but I haven't thought about the estimate idea, thanks I will keep that in mind and attack it again next week. Thanks

You know I almost forgot about this, but Quickbooks has an add-in for construction companies.

Construction QuickBooks Software

Even offers a trial. Not sure what it costs though but it looks like it will have what you need.

if you look on the left there are several add-ins.
